I was born and raised in West Wales and am fully bilingual in Welsh and English. I completed my primary and secondary education through the medium of Welsh.

For 17 years, I worked as Head of Languages in UK and international secondary schools and universities, teaching higher-level Spanish, German, English and Welsh. I currently work as a freelance translator and language teacher. I am a Chartered Linguist and a full member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and MET.

I have an MA in Translation with Language Technology (German and Spanish) from Swansea University as well as a BA in European Languages - German, Spanish and Italian from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. I also hold a PGCE (Exeter University) and CELTA (Cambridge University) in languages. This academic training has equipped me with the necessary skills to produce accurate and quality translations with careful attention to detail.

I have lived in Germany, Spain, Italy and Kazakhstan for considerable amounts of time and travel regularly to these countries. I am fluent in German, Spanish and Italian. I regularly take part in continuing professional development in the form of workshops, conferences and private study.  Here is a selection of courses that I have undertaken: Diploma in Translation Preparatory Course, IH Barcelona, Spain; Proofreading and editing course, College of Media and Publishing, UK; CPD webinars:
Clear Writing Course, Successful Copywriting, Business School for Translations,  Excel: An efficiency tool for the freelance translator,   Introduction to subtitling,  Translating for the creative industries: fashion, beauty and wine,  Specialising in Financial Translation
Spanish Legal Translation – A comparison of two different legal systems.  I have a DBS Enhanced Clearance certificate.  I have undertaken translations in the fields of education, travel and tourism, government, business and marketing, current affairs and art/film/music. I am also a qualified proofreader and am happy to consider proofreading projects in a range of other subjects.
